I teach at UMCP in the Department of Geographical Sciences' professional masters in GIS program. One class that I teach is an advanced remote sensing class focused on lidar. I would love to bring Ecosynth into my course, perhaps as a lab assignment. That way I can introduce my students to a low-cost alternative to lidar for generating point clouds.
I have yet to use Ecosynth myself, so I'm a bit of a beginner (my expertise is mostly in lidar remote sensing).
